That's a pretty weird title, considering how I have a link to it to the left and all huh?
Well, it's actually about this, a blog by someone who initially like xkcd, but has over the past year, developed the opinion that it does, indeed, suck. This website actually inspired me enough to finish reading the xkcd archive. I'd reached 300 or so, and then I started reading from both directions, one tab continuing my previous readings, while the other going backwards. That way, I read the blog post of every comic after I read the comic related to it. It's a pretty fun thing to do, if you have as much free time on the net as I do. Also, check out the meta section of the blog. Totally hilarious, that is.
On a related note, this blog has made me realise that xkcd is not that awesome after all. It's something I've always known, but instead of thinking that the joke itself was bad, I nearly always assumed that there was a reference to some math/physics/comp concept or some popular culture reference that I knew nothing about. This, in no way diminishes my enjoyment of any of the good strips, including these. So, as a direct result, and added to the fact that I have now finally finished reading the archive, I shall no longer be visiting the site.
On a tangentially related note, this comic is awesome. The timing of the joke sucks, seeing as the actual punchline is in the second frame, and the supposed punchline is, well, not nearly as good, but despite that, I loved the comic. I also fully intend to perform this generalisation myself, but that could take a while, seeing as I don't remember what gaussian integers are, aside from them being some sort of complex analogue to integers.
On an entirely unrelated note, this is an awesome comic, methinks.
And that's all the crap on the net I've accumulated which I shall post about today. Come back tomorrow for more of the foolishness I subject my mind to.
EDIT: I almost completely forgot about it, but this is just cool. The comment only makes it cooler.
